Experience a level of sensitivity so intense that you'll feel everything that happens to your fly, and you'll be ready when that fish of a lifetime makes his move.

Specific Rod Details
NRX 1068-1 PRO-1 - The 8-weight fly rod is considered the best all around rod for open water, flats fishing. It's most popular for bonefish, snook, redfish, and a number of other saltwater species. The one-piece design is the major factor in weight reduction. It has a very fast taper for creating nice, aerodynamic loops for longer casts, even in the wind. It's extremely quick and surprisingly powerful. A must have rod for any serious saltwater angler, especially for those that keep their rods in their boat!
NRX 1069-1 PRO-1 - This is the ultimate 9-weight. It is designed for larger flies, bigger fish and wind. The one-piece rod configuration makes it light, yet incredibly powerful and it will handle a number of larger fish, including permit, striped bass, false albacore and cobia. Whether you're fishing the open flats or the mangroves, this 9-weight will give feel like a feather in your hand. This is the epitome of extreme performance!
NRX 10610-1 PRO-1 - When faced with situations where you need a little more backbone for bigger fish and/or tough, windy conditions, this is a great choice. Whether you're fishing over structure or dealing with heavy shoreline cover and you need to give them the "no treatment" this is the rod you want in your hand. It's all about power and performance. An excellent rod for the likes of big stripers, sailfish, small tuna and small tarpon.
NRX 10611-1 PRO-1 - Whether you're looking for a bigger challenge or a way to make spending the day on the front deck of a flats boat a little easier, the 11-weight saltwater fly rod is an excellent option, especially when it's light as the proverbial feather. Tarpon anglers have found that they have a lot more energy at the end of a long day when they can go to a lighter rod. That's where this NRX 11-weight really shines. When fishing pressure turns off the bite, you can go to smaller flies and lighter tippets to improve the odds. It's extremely light yet surprisingly strong. Excellent for tarpon, billfish and small tuna.
NRX 10612-1 PRO-1 - This is the next revelation in big tarpon fly rods! It's so light it's unbelievable. You'll find yourself checking the specs on the logo to make sure you grabbed the 12-weight. It's a great choice for the likes of sails, striped marlin, tuna and oversized tarpon. The power and durability is incredible and you can cast all day without fear of wearing out. It's as good as it gets for saltwater fly fishing. It's advantage angler! Down and dirty has a new friend and one that's as beautiful to look at as it is to fish.
